Good morrow and glad tidings my fair fellow Chip-citizens! This month, I’m pleased as punch to bring you a review of Mr. Alex Wimmer’s upcoming release via The Waveform Generators, “An interesting Life”! Additionally, thanks to modern technology, I had the distinct pleasure of getting a few minutes of face time with MrWimmer to learn a little bit about the album.
“An Interesting Life” is the product of a year’s sweat and toil on the part of the artist. While he encountered ups; he encountered downs, and he defeated all comers that sought to get in his path.
Was it worth it? In my opinion, yes. Hands down, yes. The way MrWimmer’s meshed his voice with a jazz fueled fusion of chips, synths, and other instruments glows with that venerable lounge singer style. So much so that after I finished my first listen, I honestly wanted to queue up some Sinatra.
Now, vocals typically imply that these tunes have lyrics. If you chose to engage in that little bit of applied logic, you’d be correct. I inquired with MrWimmer as to whether there was a narrative to the album. He responded that there was, and that it was preconceived. When asked about it, he responded: “I creatively refuse to answer the question.”
Out of respect for that response, this review will focus solely on the musical aspects of the album. The lyrics are left to you, the discerning listener, as a personal experience to enjoy for yourself.
